A Community Based Partnership

Oxford Invitational Youth Robotics Challenge is a community-based partnership founded in 2005 to give youth hands-on experience in design, construction and team problem solving by building and programming a robot for an industrial-type task. Through this exciting project youth are encouraged to explore the many rewarding careers available today with manufacturing companies in Oxford County and the surrounding area. 

Our Goals

  • To give youth hands-on experience in design, construction and team problem solving by building and programming a robot for an industry modeled task
  • To expose youth to innovative technology and to test their interests and abilities
  • To connect youth with a mentor from the manufacturing industry to provide valuable experience, learning about real world scenarios, problem solving and team building skills

  • Community Employment Services Oxford
  • Elgin Middlesex Oxford Workforce Planning & Development Board
